In the two slit experiment, wave-functions are the naturally occurring pathways that, being waves, interfere with one another. The geodesic described by general relativity is another kind of naturally occurring pathway that guides massive particle and photons through space (as any pathway would). The pathways of geodesics, of gravity, are made of wave-functions.
When frequency shift is generated, the angular property of space is laid down (the wave function is laid down). Since the wave-function behaves like a pathway, then frequency shift emission effectively lays down a pathway with a gravitational potential energy across it. A pathway with a gravitational pathway across it is a geodesic.
This is another way of describing the operational principles of the gravity propulsion drive. If you want evidence, then do the experiment.

That sounds so weird. So: a light wave, because it's sinusoidal in behavior, becomes a sine function?

e^i pi = cos(pi) + i sin(pi).
Question: what are the building blocks of the laws of nature? Of gravity? Quantum mechanics? Everything?
Answer: Phase angles/Radians/Degrees of electromagnetism. Remember that electromagnetisim is implemented by virtual photons. Virtual photons are described by wave-functions, wave-functions are of the form e^i pi.
What about gravity and curvature of space-time? GR?
Answer: Both the speed of light and the square of the interval are invariant. In GR, two events are separated by the interval; the square of the interval is invariant for all reference frames. That means that all reference frames are tied together by:
1. speed of light, c;
2. square of interval between two events.
Two events can be as simple as two phases of a light wave. I'll explain more later.

The two slit diffraction experiment can be performed one particle at a time, in such a way that the photon (or sometimes electron) has no other particle to interfere with.
The way the Double slit experiment works is if particles are fired at two or more slits, such that nobody knows which slit the particle went through, then the particles will seem to act like waves and accumulate on the back wall in an interference pattern. If only one slit is open, then the particle(s) land on the backwall without an interference pattern. If many particles are fired at once, through two or more slits, then one might suspect that the interference pattern is caused by the particles interfering with each other. But if only one particle at a time is fired at the slits, the particles still behave like waves.
I believe that the wave-function pathway, one for each slit, is a naturally occuring phenomena. I believe that the pathways are what interfere as waves. I further interpret the space-time continuum to be made out of wave-functions itself. Since wave-functions can be pathways for particles and light, then they can behave like geodesics.
A point in space-time can be described, relative to reference frame S, as [-ct,x,y,z]. A wave-function for a plane wave, can be described as
Psi = exp^i[kx + ky + kz - wt]. While the square of the interval between two events can be described as,
-cdt^2 + dx^2 + dy^2 + dz^2 = -cdt'^2 + dx'^2 + dy'^2 + dz'^2. More to follow...

Mazulu: Mathematics is a Model of reality. It's a very accurate model, but no model is 100% accurate. For example, you can divide any number- except zero. It has minor bumps.
Being a model of reality is different from being reality.
I think you are mistaking the model for the real thing.

I believe that the light, space, and time are implemented by wave-functions which are just cos() + i sin(). So it would go:
protons, neutrons, electrons,
quantum particles (Quarks, neutrinos, particles of the Standard Model),

Mazulu has been told this directly by God.
How can you question it?

It's OK to say light behaves like a sine wave, but it's quite a different thing to say it's made out of a sine function, as if the universe is created out of our particular notions of how to represent the way it behaves.
That would be really weird. Unless you're agreeing AlexG's point about some divine connection.
Following that, we just need a new definition of God. Something like: God is made out of dot products of fields impinging on surfaces, plus the rest of the stuff Maxwell's equations are made out of...plus an attitude...(something like that).

this, and this and even this. The mathematics of quantum mechanics, operators, and wave-function solutions to Schrodinger equation were all invented by scientists & mathematicians by observing nature. Do you understand?
Also, I am not trying to obtain authority by claiming that God or aliens or whatever told me this stuff. If I mention it, it's only because I was truly inspired by the experience(s). My actual intent is to discuss certain ideas with others just to check to see if the idea(s) make sense, or does not make sense..

My previous comments about you clearly not understanding wave functions were entirely accurate. You're just spewing out things you don't understand thinking they sound impressive. Some of us work with the Schrodinger equation and the dynamics of wave functions for a living.

Here is a picture of a wave function for the hydrogen atom. The hydrogen atom wave function has an ethereal, almost ghostly quality to it. You have lost sight of the forest for the trees. That etheric looking atom wave-function represents all of the information that can be measured.

Lets talk about gravity propulsion drives, experiments and mathematics. I propose that we try a frequency shift experiment to see if we can induce an intrinsic energy density of the vacuum. Take a look at the Einstein equations.
There are two driving terms that result in curvature of space-time, the stress energy tensor and the cosmological constant. If we want to build a gravity propulsion drive, then we really can't depend upon the stress energy tensor because it tells us we need to manipulate solar masses of mass-energy in order to generate gravity. For all practical purposes, this is impossible. It makes more sens to set the stress energy tensor to 0, which means that we're not going to bother with manipulating black holes; we're not going to convert Jupiter into energy. If , a 4x4 matrix all set to 0, then we are left with,
Curvature terms are on the left and a Cosmological driving term is on the right. I don't see the gravitational constant anywhere, do you? All I see is the Cosmological constant as a driving term for acceleration fields. The next step is harder than anything you've ever done before. You have to use your imagination to come up with a way to physically manipulate the Cosmological constant, locally; you have to think up an experiment to see if your idea works.

Geeze, that's some great physics there. You arbitrarily set a term to 0 and then do some whiz bang Junior Highschool algebra and presto you have gravity propulsion. How freaking sad and embarrasing!
Let me try that:
F=ma, since I am not going to manipulate mass I will set it to zero. So force equal acceleration. Golly this is easy!
I wonder if you have even graduated from highschool!

Hubble's law tells us that redshift is proportional to distance away from other galaxies. Hubble's law is the experimental observation that space is expanding. Gravity is attractive and is based upon how much mass-energy there is exists. Expansion of the universe is another phenomenon entirely. Cosmological constant is the part of the Einstein equations that describes expansion/contraction of space-time caused by intrinsic energy density of the vacuum, not the stress-energy term.
It's too hard and impractical to curve space-time by changing the stress-energy tensor. However, it might be possible to curve space-time by changing the local energy density of the vacuum. Can we figure out a way to do that?
